Description joaquin 2012-08-06 16:58:10 UTC
It does not matter if you change the locale for a cell or a sheet, if your decimal separator in your global locale is "," there is no way to get "VALUE()" to create a NUMBER from texts like:

25.23
1,333.33
Comment 1 joaquin 2012-08-06 17:16:13 UTC
Maybe the VALUE() function can honour locale-settings for a sheet or cel, or else can get an optional "FORMAT" parameter like the TEXT() function?
Comment 2 Eike Rathke 2013-07-01 13:58:15 UTC
As of LibreOffice 4.1 there will be the NUMBERVALUE function to address this problem.
Comment 3 Eike Rathke 2013-07-01 14:02:02 UTC
See bug 57180 for feature implementation.
